Cape May Court House, New Jersey (March 23, 2018)-- – The Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office is seeking to update its current list of schools and community organizations within the county that are eligible by law to receive formal notifications of certain sexual offenders in their community. Since 1994, State legislation known as Megan’s Law has allowed the law enforcement agencies of New Jersey to identify certain sexual offenders in their communities and provide notification of their whereabouts to members of the public.
All public, private and parochial education institutions through grade 12, licensed daycare centers and licensed summer camps are automatically eligible and do not need to fill out an application. However, other community organizations that potentially may be eligible to receive notifications are those groups, agencies and organizations that own or operate an establishment where children gather under their care or where the organization cares for women.
Therefore, Prosecutor Jeffrey H. Sutherland is asking all potentially eligible schools, daycare facilities, camps, and other community organizations to visit the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office website at www.cmcpros.net to obtain an application. You may also contact the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office, Megan’s Law Unit via telephone at 609-465-1135 to request an application. Please return completed forms to the Prosecutor’s Office Megan’s Law Unit, 4 More Road, DN 110, Cape May Court House, NJ 08210 or fax forms to 609-463-5175.
